Video: Holocaust survivor sibling reunion after 65 years

I found this video totally by chance, but it's too good not to pass on.

Hilda Shlick (formerly Glasberg) thought she had lost practically all of her family in the Holocaust. By searching Yad Vashem's Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names, Hilda's grandchildren discovered that most of Hilda's family had in fact survived. As a result, an emotional meeting between Hilda and her brother Simon was able to take place at Yad Vashem (actually at the airport, but the blurb said Yad Vashem). A family that had been separated for over 60 years was finally reunited.

Makes you want to go hit that database right away, doesn't it?
